Forum: forums Subject: Viewing pages less than 6 month old

I wanted to access a Tread of a technical Forum site archieved in this Internet Archive, but only the first page of that Thread with series of posts is accessible. Subsequent pages are "not found" in the Archive, possibly because some are less than 6 month old. Original Forum site is dead. How and where I can access these pages? Is there a "Dead Site" exception policy to 6-month rule? If pages are collected from sites once in 6 month, what happen if a site dies before that?

search google and see cached versions of pages. try to contact former maintainer of dead site.
6 month rule doesnt mean that pages are archived only every 6 months. it means that only pages more than 6 months old appear in wayback machine. so if pages were less than 6 months old, there is a chance that they were archived and will go public later.
